After Rakhi Sawant calling Tanushree Dutta a lesbian and ‘man from inside’, the actress has finally spoken about the allegations and has blasted on the controversy queen Rakhi Sawant by calling her ‘uncouth, uneducated and dirty’. The ugly fight between Rakhi and Tanushree started when the former held a press conference, in which she accused Tanushree of raping her multiple times twelve years ago. She also claimed that the actress was her best friend and took her to rave parties where she forced her to consume drugs.

After listening to these allegations, Tanushree slapped a Rs 10 crore defamation case on Rakhi and now she has strongly reacted to her allegations. In a statement, Tanushree said, “My parents always told me to choose my friends very carefully and I learnt to live by that advice. I simply avoid at all cost people I think are not good for me. So it's disgusting when uncouth, uneducated, dirty, downmarket, classless, characterless, perverted, degraded abominations like Rakhi Sawant claim to ever be friends with me."

Rakhi Sawant has also claimed that Tanushree is a homosexual as she shaved her head. Hitting back at her statement, the actress said, , "Calling me homosexual because I shaved my head. In both the Hindu and Buddhist traditions, when one gets 'diksha' or initiation into deep spiritual practises or yogic sadhana, out of devotion and surrender to God and guru, one gives up their identity signified by giving up the hair. Insulting a serious Hindu tradition by calling it a homosexual practise... Shame on you Rakhi!"

Tanushree believes that Rakhi Sawant is targeting her because when she met her in 2009 on a airport, Sawant tried to convince her to turn to Christianity but she refused and even felt disgusted by what she was saying. Tanushree said that she was actually put off Christianity because of Rakhi's "ridiculous conversion tactics". She said, "These Rakhi Sawants of the world are the kind of people who are the reason the minorities get into trouble in our country.

Filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj says though superstars are taking risks by doing out-of-the-box films today, for him, Aamir Khan is the only daring actor. Bhardwaj, who has worked with Ajay Devgn, Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor in the past, says he needs an apt story to collaborate with top actors. “I want to work with superstars. I approach them. If there would have been some response, they would have been in some film of mine. But they aren’t there. There has to be a right subject.

“They are taking risk today and it is good sign for our cinema. Aamir Khan is the only daring actor. He transformed amazingly for Dangal. He admits and acknowledges his age and works accordingly,” Bhardwaj said.

He is happy with the rave reviews his latest directorial venture Pataaka featuring relatively new faces like Sanya Malhotra and Radhika Madan, received. The director acknowledges he has his own set of audience which enjoys watching his kind of cinema. “I have a small or limited audience but I make films to cater to everyone. I would want everybody to watch my films but that doesn’t happen. So you don’t know your audience. And the day you come to know about this, you are finished. For me, it is always about the story I want to convey to people.”

There has been speculation that Bhardwaj, 53, is set to adapt a book for Netflix. “Big filmmakers will be coming there. Things are shifting. If you want to watch a spectacle then watch on the big screen. If you want to watch content then digital is the best medium,” he says.

Kannada actor Arjun Sarja has filed a Rs 5 crore defamation suit against Sruthi Hariharan, who accused him of sexual harassment on the sets of bilingual film Vismaya/ Nibunan. Sruthi was the first actress from Kannada industry to share her #MeToo story.

The defamation suit was filed by Arjun’s nephew Dhruv Sarja on the actor’s behalf at the Bengaluru City Civil Court. A few hours before filing the lawsuit, Arjun’s manager also lodged a complaint with the Cyber Crime Cell claiming the actor’s social media accounts have been hacked.

In response to Sruthi’s allegations, Arjun had earlier responded, “I am saddened by the allegations and I don’t know how I can correct this. I will definitely file a case. I will speak about improving the shots and dialogues but I don’t have the cheap mentality of using this profession to touch women inappropriately.”

The director of the film had also supported Arjun. Sruthi added to her original statement on Wednesday through her Facebook account and said that she was not being directed by anyone to accuse Arjun. She also stressed that if the actor decided to file a case against her, she had enough evidence to back her claims.

Sruthi also slammed the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce’s president Sa Ra Govindu of being biased and not taking the right action. It should be noted that the KFCC does not have an official body that allows women to register their complaints about workplace safety. This led to actor-Congress leader Ambareesh playing mediator between Sruthi and Arjun during a meeting that was held in Bengaluru.

Bollywood actor Arbaaz Khan, on Thursday, said that he supports the #Metoo movement as no one has the right to harass anyone. The actor, however, said innocent people should not be framed. "No one has the right to harass anyone. I fully support the #MeToo movement. Sexual harassment survivors should get justice but we also have to take care of the fact that no one misuses this movement.

"The kind of atmosphere right now is that people are taking decisions based on anyone's accusations. We need to be sensible in these cases," he said in a group interview in Mumbai. The actor said the movement is "like a tsunami" and since it's new, people are taking time to come to a conclusion regarding corrective measures.

"If the accused has admitted to wrongdoing, apologised for it and wants to redeem himself so, I don't know how do we solve these things. The current atmosphere is like a tsunami. No one knows how the decisions will be taken and what will eventually happen.

"We need to listen to sensible people... I hope the court brings new laws regarding these cases. I hope some positive changes will emerge from this movement," he added.

The actor was speaking on the sidelines of his next film, Jack and Dil scheduled to release on November 2.

From Bollywood, names like Alok Nath, Vikas Bahl, Mukesh Chhabra, Nana Patekar, Sajid Khan, Kailash Kher, Anu Malik and Rajat Kapoor are being accused of sexual misconduct by several women.

Tamil superstar Vijay’s upcoming film Sarkar was cleared with a ‘U/A’ certificate by the censor board on Thursday, paving the way for its worldwide release. After getting the approval of censor officials, the producers confirmed the release date as November 6.

With just two weeks for its release, the big-budget movie has courted controversy. Director AR Murugadoss has been accused of stealing the story of Sarkar from another filmmaker.

Writer and assistant director Varun Rajendran has approached the South Indian Film Writers Association claiming that Sarkar’s story is a copy of his work titled Sengol which he registered in 2007 with the Writer’s Union. His complaint is currently under an investigation.

AR Murugadoss had been accused of plagiarism a few times in his illustrious career of 17 years. His blockbusters Ghajini and Kaththi were also in a similar situation in the past.

Even as an official comment on the controversy is awaited, the producers of Sarkar have reportedly moved the Madras High Court as a preventive measure to safeguard their interest.
